Abstract: Idiopathic epiretinal membranes are common in older people. Some patients will have symptoms, including blurred vision, metamorphopsia, monocular diplopia, and micro/macropsia. These symptoms can seriously affect their daily life. Therefore, understanding the pathogenesis of idiopathic epiretinal membranes and how they can be effectively treated is important.

Key words: Idiopathic epiretinal membrane, Pathogenesis, Treatment
